AudioQuest’s Premiere of the Niagara 7000

On Tuesday, November 10 we hosted our AudioQuest friends Garth Powell, Rick Blair and Jim Scatena and a roomful of you, our customers.  Garth was here to demonstrate the new Niagara 7000 Low-Z Power Noise-Dissipation System for the first time anywhere in the U.S.  He was also here to play the drums and describe how his talent and experience at that meaningfully relates to his power conditioner designs.  It was a great night.

If you attended, the following videos will let you relive this wonderful evening.  If you missed it, please enjoy this version of Garth’s entertaining show.  And if you use a Dragonfly and a pair of NightHawks connected to your computer, you can easily hear the improvements wrought by the Niagara 7000 captured by our video camera even on YouTube.  Just imagine what a Niagara would do for your music if it’s actually in your system!

 

The U.S. Premiere of AudioQuest’s Niagara 7000 Power Conditioner

Ultra Fidelis is proud beyond words to announce that we will be hosting the U.S. premiere of the AudioQuest Niagara 7000 power conditioner.

GarthPowell

We didn’t know 12 years ago when we set aside our dislike of power conditioners and tried the Furman units, at the cajoling of AudioQuest and Vandersteen, that we were hearing Garth Powell’s genius, but we knew we were in love. It was a few years later we met Garth, and in the intervening time we have formed a bond with this man who is not only our favorite power expert, but an exceptional musician as well. We couldn’t have been more delighted when we heard he had joined the AudioQuest team, as we knew this would be the perfect environment for him to follow his muse in the power field.

We have been salivating ever since we sat in on a presentation Garth gave a year ago of a prototype of the 7000 and have been patiently waiting ever since for the moment we can share it with you. The time is finally here. We invite you to join us Tuesday, November 10, from 6:00 to 9:00 PM for an evening with Garth Powell and the AudioQuest Niagara 7000. Be forewarned. You WILL want one.

Please RSVP by calling Ultra Fidelis at 414.221.0200 as seating will be limited.

 

Mission: Bullseye to UltraFi

Ultra Fidelis is celebrating the start of the Indoor Music Listening Season by giving you a chance to enhance your LP and CD library for FREE!  We are partnering with Bullseye Records who is giving away two $200 store gift certificates that the winners may spend on anything in Bullseye.

150097_10151255132462502_486834736_n
Simply go to Bullseye Records and collect a raffle ticket, bring it to Ultra Fidelis, drop it in the box and cross your fingers.  Tickets must be in the box by the close of business for us at 7:00 PM Friday, October 23rd.  This will give our customers an opportunity to meet Luke Lavin and Terry Hackbarth, and get to explore the many great finds at Bullseye whether you are one of the winners or not.

Then, on Saturday, October 24th Luke will be here from 4:00 to 5:00 PM to culminate the celebration and pull the two lucky winners at Ultra Fidelis.  You need not be present to win, but it’s always fun and there will be added reasons to attend.  Luke will be handing out Bullseye discount coupons and Ultra Fidelis will give each of you here for the wrap-up a free AudioQuest Carbon Fiber record brush.

So bring on those cool autumn nights, and let’s fire up the stereos again!

 

Another Music And Beer Lovers Event

 

whitleyTuesday, March 10th, 7PM at Sugar Maple

It’s officially a tour with this announcement of our second “Hi-Fi in the Wild” event. The Academy of Music night was a smash and now the bus pulls up at the Fillmore West for an encore performance. The boys, flush with success, have learned not to be their own roadies this time, leaving them fresh as daisies come show time to fill the room with exotic sounds, virtually guaranteeing an intoxicating peek into the nether worlds of recorded music.

Jonathan Spelt, of Ultra Fidelis, Peter Clemens, who knows how to live and knows his music, and Bruno Johnson, beer purveyor to the cognoscenti will again bring a Fancy Stereo System and some Well Curated Music into one of the pre-eminent Milwaukee drinking establishments.

Please join us Tuesday, March 10th at 7:00 at Sugar Maple, 441 East Lincoln Avenue for a few hours of great sounding music recordings, played back well, and some of the world’s greatest beer, served impeccably. Let’s see how it goes this time!

 

 

 

 

 

A Music And Beer Lover’s Event

 

whitley

As Robbie Robertson said, kicking off the concerts that became Rock Of Ages, we’re going to try something that we’ve never done before.  In The Band’s case it was one of the most brilliant masterstrokes in live music.  We can’t live up to that.  But, similarly, we are going to combine some things that don’t often go together and see what happens.

Jonathan Spelt, of Ultra Fidelis, Peter Clemens, who knows how to live and knows his music, and Mike Romans, proprietor extraordinaire of Romans’ Pub will bring a Fancy Stereo System and some Well Curated Music into one of the 100 Best Places to Drink Beer in the country (no joke: Imbibe Magazine).

Please join us Tuesday, January 13th at 7:00 at Romans’ Pub, 3475 South Kinnickinnic Avenue for a few hours of great sounding music recordings, played back well, and some of the world’s greatest beer, served impeccably.  Let’s see how it goes!

 

 

 

 

 

Music Matters- An Audioquest and UltraFi Event

Audioquest Diamond USB

Who: The Trio from Audioquest

What: Unraveling the Mysteries of Computer Audio

Where: Ultra Fidelis, 7125 West North Avenue, Wauwatosa

When: Wednesday, November 13 2013, 7 PM (RSVP Required)

Why: The need to know, and enjoy!

In the first doubleheader in Ultra Fidelis history, Wednesday, November 13, the day after the Vandersteen event, we will host Steve Silberman, Rick Blair and Jim Scatena for an Ultra Fidelis/Audioquest evening dedicated to computer audio.

 

If there are two things we have observed about computer audio they are that:

•It is, without a doubt, the most sonically satisfying way to listen to digital music, be it high resolution or standard CD.
•It can be a bit daunting to dive into without a lifeline.

Join us as we demonstrate the potential for sonic wonder that lies untapped inside your computer, and provide you with the confidence to take the plunge! The official program will run from 7 to 9 PM, but the Audioquest folks will be here all day, and we will be open (on a Wednesday!) from 10 to 9, so if you cannot make the evening event, please feel free to stop in any time during the day.

Music will be played, knowledge will be imparted, questions will be answered, refreshments will be enjoyed, fun will be had, and a prize of not inconsiderable value will be awarded to some lucky participant. RSVP at your earliest convenience if you plan on attending the evening event. How can you not?

To RSVP, please email Jonathan.Spelt@UltraFi.com or call 414-221-0200.

 

An Evening With Richard Vandersteen

vandersteen sevenWho: Richard Vandersteen

What: The Model 7’s

Where: Ultra Fidelis, 7125 West North Avenue, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin

When: Tuesday, November 12 2013, 7 PM (RSVP Required)

Why: Because we can!

Please join us for a very special evening with Richard Vandersteen and the Model 7 loudspeakers.  The Model 7 has turned the world on its ear with a total rethinking of cone and dome materials.

Knowing Richard, the evening will lean heavily analog so we will have the other-worldly Lyra Atlas mounted up on the SME ‘table for your listening pleasure.  But there will be plenty of opportunity to hear some great digital music as well.  Understanding, as you probably do, that this will be an evening not to be missed, please bear in mind that attendance may have to be limited and it is important that you RSVP at your earliest convenience to ensure admission.

 

To RSVP, please email Jonathan.Spelt@UltraFi.com or call 414-221-0200.
